About theTeachers

Apollo Swing Astrid

Astrid Akay

Artistry is in Astrid’s blood! Growing up with a love of dance, music and theatre, Astrid studied 4 years of theatre studies at the Royal Conservatoire de Liège, before travelling internationally with various theatre projects. One such project, based on a poem by Hatian author René Depestre, introduced Astrid to African American blues and working songs, piquing her interest in jazz music and history. It was this newfound love for jazz that led her to discover Lindy Hop and other authentic jazz dances. Today Astrid is part of the Brussels performance group the Jazz Maniacs. Her central interest in jazz dance is the old-school style of Lindy Hop, and the freedom of improvisation in jazz - which for her is also influenced by her professional background as an actor and theatre director. As a teacher, Astrid is passionate about sharing this love for music, improvisation and jazz history with others.
